The University Interscholastic League (UIL) was created by The
University of Texas at Austin to provide leadership and guidance to
public school debate and athletic teachers. Since 1910 the UIL has grown
into the largest inter-school organization of its kind in the world.
The UIL continues to operate as part of the University of Texas, under
the auspices of the Vice President for Diversity & Community
The UIL exists to provide educational
extracurricular academic, athletic, and music contests. The initials UIL
have come to represent quality educational competition administered by
school people on an equitable basis.
